three, and critically important as education and guidance. more than ever workers are responsible for saving and planning for their retirement. they need help understanding a range of financial topics from the most basic information about how to enroll and how much they should save to the more complex topics such as proper asset allocation and in come planning. workers had received guidance take action and have better outcomes. our data shows that workers who engage in a retirement planning session as and nexium pulled either online or on the phone increase their deferral rates on average by five to six percentage points. one thing that is constant in all of our research is that a majority of workers want and need help. workers also need a simple way to gauge their savings process. last fall fidelity released new research on age based savings guidelines. these guidelines serve as a framework for establishing the retirement savings goals as workers progress through their careers, their salary, time a factor of x can be one of the measures used to assess the retirement savings progr
, their actual true core, it was just as a pencil sketch. education opens up doors, that's really what we try to focus on. we don't try and tell people "here is what you have to go do and here is the path ahead that you have to take." but, it's much more about creating a sense of possibility and allowing each child to dictate their own path. we build schools and increase access to education for children around the world and we have now broken ground on over a hundred schools in africa, asia and latin america. if you think about the way that the world was 50 years ago and you think about how the world is going to look 50 years from now, i cannot imagine that every single child thats born doesn't have some opportunity to have access to quality education. the schools that we build and will continue to build will be a very important piece to that puzzle, but it's innovation through technology that's going to be able to reach the masses in ways that we have never been able to do so before. and so a big part of pencils of promise going forward is going to be investment in education technology for t

'm grateful for his education and there is no comparison between the quality of this man and chuck hagel. they are in different sandboxes. i'm very grateful for people like this who we desperately need in times like this. >> we go to the independent line. this is doug, welcome to the conversation. caller: thanks for taking my call and thanks to c-span. i think the only one that had any sanity and knew the questions that were going to be asked. we did not get any answers to them. how is the decision made? what are the requirements? the independent said we should have a court that regardless who the president is they should not have a unilateral way to document nominate someone. people in this country don't know about the mddaa, the national defense thorgs act which allows the president to designate a person who he feels is a terrorist or supporting terrorist organizations to deprive him of life, liberty and not be able to go in front of a court. you can't say listen, you have the wrong person. we can be unilaterally detained. there is no question about, for instance, the propaganda guy th
trained people in the war zone and educational where, that you lack the capability to have well-trained individuals that you can deploy elsewhere. and that creates a real readiness crisis for us. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you. >> thank you very much, senator. senator bloomen that is next. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i want to join my colleagues in thanking you, secretary panetta for your extraordinary service to our nation, and the personal sober and time that you are have devoted to all of us on the panel and other members of the congress. general dempsey, thank you as well for your service. and to both of you for your forthright and credible and significant testimony today explaining some answers to questions that are painful, i think, for all of us, and i know for you having attended the services and ceremonies in honor of these brave patriots and heroes, as you call them, and also your knowledge personally of them. and i'm struck as senator senator kaine was by the provocative i would prefer to call it powerful statement you offered regarding the effect on the nati
platform, education, flexible working hours, closing loopholes in the tax code. things that are broadly popular across the aisle s. that the republican approach to emphasize things that are popular in their party platform and just not talk about the other stuff? >> well, i think that even uttering the phrase working moms is progress for this republican party. >> right. >> but what matters is the details behind it. and whether you're talking about big cuts in discretionary spending that might include education spending, health care spending, child care, et cetera, when you talk about committing federal resources, tax money, to these kinds of problems, that's where the republicans go on a different direction and most of the american people at a time where they're worried about the future, where they're worried about the state of the economy, where they really frankly all that optimistic about the private economy providing them jobs, they're going to look to the government for help. if the republicans continue to be philosophically opposed to that idea which they are at root then all kinds
. it's appropriate i do this at georgetown. as the product of jesuit education, as a catholic and as a beneficiary over the years of your outstanding faculty and staff and your important policy contributions that this university has made in a number of areas that affect people of this country. i'm truly honored to have this opportunity today. i've had a deep and abiding respect for georgetown throughout the almost 40 to 50 years that i've been involved in public service. and i have a deep respect for the generation of leaders that have gone forward from this campus to serve our nation. i just had the opportunity to meet with your cadets. some of the cadets in the rotc program. as someone who went through the rotc program at santa clara university and then ultimately served two years in the army, i can tell you that i have tremendous admiration for those that have made the decision to serve this country in uniform. the talents of these men and women and the innovative programs at georgetown's new institute of women, peace and security underscore for me the university's leadersh
wasteful spending, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep indiscriminate cuts to education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks who are out there still looking for work. the good news is this doesn't have to happen. for all of the drama and disagreements we've had over the past few years, democrats and republicans have still been able to come together and cut the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion through a mix of spending cuts and higher rates on taxes for the wealthy. a balanced approach has achieved more than $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. that's more than halfway towards the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists and elected officials from both parties believe is required to stabilize our debt. so we've made progress. and i still believe that we can finish the job with a balanced mix of spending cuts and more tax reform. the proposals that i put forward during the fiscal cliff negotiations in discussions with speaker
to live without. embarrassment's and education and infrastructure. research and development -- investments and education and infrastructure. already republicans and democrats of work together to reduce deficits by $2.50 trillion. that is a good start. to get the rest of the way, we need a balanced set of reforms. for example, we need to lower the cost of health care and programs like medicare that are the biggest drivers of the deficit. these reforms must go hand in hand with eliminating excess spending in the tax code so the wealthiest individuals can ticket veg of loopholes and deductions the kind of bailable to most americans. it can be a year solid growth, more jobs, and higher wages. that will only happen of reporters up to self-inflicted wounds. host: the president in his weekly address. the earlier debt limit with $16.40 trillion. we have surpassed that. you can keep track of it at usdebtclock.org. it is now $60.50 trillion. the next debate over the debt limit is likely to come up mid may. a story from "the weekly standard." we need a better argument against the debt. she writes --
to reach out to the industry to come up with a way to really promote financial literacy and education before college level, getting into high schools so that we have an educated group of young folks who come out and understand about the importance of having a financial house in order, the importance of having a good credit history, the understanding what it means to be smart about using credit. >> you can watch that entire conversation with the chamber of commerce this afternoon right after the farewell ceremony for secretary of defense leon panetta, which is expected to start at about 3:45 p.m. eastern, and next tuesday night, president obama delivering his fourth state of the union address to a joint session of congress. it includes the president's speech at 9:00 and the republican response from florida senator marco rubio. that will be on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org >> first lady helen taft on discussing politics. >> i always had the satisfaction of knowing almost as much as he about the politics and intricacies of any situation. i think any woman can discuss with her husb
of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together to eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that we agree need some reform. >> our first read team notes that while republicans want to solely talk about the budget the white house does not want to be bogged down on one issue that in the past cost hem political capital. quote, the obama white house wants to overled wa's political circuits to see what it can get through congress without letting congress define what issues get addressed. joining us now kelly o'donnell. our first read team noted the p talking about guns, immigration and today addressing the issue of the sequester. >> reporter: well, there is that sprint in the first year of his second term to try to get as much done as possible. and urgency on all these issues for different reasons. and when it comes to the sequester, the automatic budget cuts, kind of an odd term for what's meant to be aut
spending, we cannot just cut our way to prosperity. deep indiscriminate cuts to education and training, energy, and national security will cost us jobs and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do it for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. host: your reaction? guest: the president was serious about not slowing down the economy, he would get a handle on his environmental protection agency and stop some of the regulations. he would approved the keystone pipeline. that is something that has been sitting on his desk a long time. there are things that could be done to help the economy apart from the sequestered. the reason the sequester is tough is when you pick up the federal budget and say we will try to find savings in the budget, every single line has a constituency and a lobbyist somewhere, whether it is a municipal organization, whether it is a big defense contractor, everyone has something that interests them. that's why it's difficult to say we are one to take out this line of that line when there is a loser in that
'm there to figure out why people commit this crime, to show how it happens and educate people. we approach this like it's a continuing story and continue to cover it. >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. substituting today, chuck todd. >>> good morning. it's super bowl sunday. and here in washington, some big showdowns are on the horizon. we've got it all covered this morning, including the big game tonight. bob costas of nbc sports will be here to talk about football and player safety issues. >>> but we want to start with a washington battle on full display this week when the president's pick to head the pentagon, former republican senator chuck hagel, came under fire from members of his own party during a very contentious confirmation hearing. >> name one person in your opinion who's intim nated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> are we right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> senator hagel, please answer the question i asked. today, do you think unilateral sanctions would
at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. >> congressman, how does this rebraineding or the mission or the hope that the republican party has of trying to put some new paint on the brand mesh with all of the big policy fights that are going on right now in washington, d.c.? >> well, republicans know they're hurting after the last election, but they think the solution to this is somehow just to change the packaging, to change the way they talk about their policies, when the real problems are their underlying policies themselves. so, for example, the american people support comprehensive immigration reform. the president has put forth a proposal. we're looking at bipartisan proposals emerging from the senate. but the house for the most part under republican control is not taking any leadership on that issue. the same with gun safety issues. very common sense proposals, things like having a universal background check. again, the house is sitting on their hands. all they want to deal with are some of these budget gimmicks they're talking about and not ev
the years. the markets give you more money to invest in education and these things in the short run. >> joe's new policy is active despair. >> what's that, gene sxwrrchlt. >> your new policy appears to be active despair opposed to passi passive. >> active despair is saying it everyday for a year and people not hearing it. i am that train calling in a forest when nobody is around. snow you have been heard. >> on the grizzly bear. >> i like the bear thing. that's good. >> all right. >> thank you, gene, be reading your column in the "washington post." jon meachem, stay. when we come back, house majority leader eric cantor delivering a major speech how the republican party should change its message and redirect its focus. >> and all the people said, amen. twins. i didn't see them coming. i have obligations. cute obligations, but obligations. i need to rethink the core of my portfolio. what i really need is sleep. introducing the ishares core, building blocks for the heart of your portfolio. find out why 9 out of 10 large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock
to come in or two learn how to swim out to the ship and the bottom line is you look at education, this economy has done a tremendous toll on low wage jobs, low skilled jobs and as blacks traditionally have technically less education than whites have. >> you're talking about swimming out of the pool but if there are no jobs available it's high for black americans, so how do you swim out of the pool? what exactly do you do? >> look there's only three things we can do, one, if your skills are not, no longer acceptable within your area you can move to another area where your skills are acceptable, two, go back to school and increase your education and get more skills or three, you can learn how to create your own company where you can create a demand for your own and be that entrepreneur and try to capitalize off of the demand within your community. all of these things again as a financial, i'm not trying to say the president can't do more as an advocate, it's my job to push him to go further. we have to say if we continue to allow on one man barack obama to do things, there's certai
is knowing your background, knowing your jesuit education and knowing what your values are, i know that you will be very forthcoming with this committee. to speak truth about our and even when it is uncomfortable. that is not an easy way to go. >> truthfulness with a value that was put in me and my parents. it still is to this day. honesty is the best policy. none of us are perfect beings. i would commit to that i would be honest with this committee. it would be my objective to make cia your favorite intelligence agency. [laughter] >> well, i think you are pushing your luck now. thank you. >> senator leven. >> thank you for your willingness to serve here. my question is this, in your opinion does water boarding constitute torture? >> the attorney general has referred to water boarding as torture. many people have referred to it as torture. as you well know and we've had the discussion the term torture has a lot of implications. it is something that should have been banned and it should never have taken place in my view. if i go to c.i.a. it would never be brought back. >> do you have a pers
sense. >> we just had a hearing in our education committee on this issue. we made the decision. it's a local decision, piers. we have over 1,000 school districts in texas. many large districts have armed guards already. but the rural districts that won't have police response for five, 10, 15 minutes want to arm their teachers. >> i met two young female elementary school teachers in their early 20s in a bar in houston friday night. we talked to them with our producers. both believed in having a concealed carry permit because of their own safety. none of them wanted to have assault weapons, complete ban of assault weapons and were absolutely aghast at the prospect of having any guns in their schools. >> there's always going to be someone -- >> that's in texas. >> here is what i said. you asked me earlier, what would i say to the parents at this school whose kids died. i would say to you, why are you obsessing over a gun when there's a much bigger issue? there's mental health issues here. >> i'm obsessing over the very gun that killed their children. that's why. >> what happened when
at all. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep, indiscriminate cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. >> of course, the architect for the republican position on the economy has been congressman paul ryan, who chairs the house budget committee. and just as mr. ryan has problems recalling his exact marathon time, so he appears to have real problems with who was responsible for the sequester in the first place. >> we think the sequesters will happen because the democrats have opposed our efforts to replace those cuts with others and they've offered no alternatives. >> and while the republican approach to the fast approaching sequester leads them to rewrite history and ignore the potential for economic disaster, mr. ryan's friend and colleague, eric cantor, was also out delivering his own version of republican revisionism. >> our house republican majority stands ready for the president and his party to join us in actually tackling the big problems facing this country. >> that was mr. eric cantor 6.0-let's turn to representative
education, knowing what i think your values are, kihave your word that you -- can i have your word that you will be very forthcoming with this committee to speak truth to power, to speak truth about power and even when it's uncomfortable, where we have to probe in a way that is not an easy way to go? >> former adviser to the president reagan, pat buchanan is here. do you have problems with the program to use drones to kill americans overseas if they are believed to be associated with al qaeda. >> vinever seen a bigger assort ion of imperial presidency than that. the president is claiming the right for himself and high-rank subordinates to identify what they consider a threat, imminent threat, the right to use a hell-fire missile to kill them, even if they are an american citizen. i have never heard of this before. i don't think it's going to stand. i think the congress of the united states, which has the power over the declarations of war will get in on this. i think there has to be a judicial review when are you killing americans. >> what struck me, when you talked about richard nixon and
cookie, he is well educated. or mayor seven layer cake because he is a complex man or public servant, which they say would be filled with pecans and cash ews because the mayor's job is simply nuts. no word when these may come to fruition. >> bill: i don't know that they will ever call him senator booker. >> yeah. >> banned from eating competitions, you can book competitive eater takaro takaro kukushioti. he ate an entire pizza in front of a crowd in one minute. >> that's officially faster than the world record of 1 minute and 9 seconds of eating a large pizza. he was paid $3,200 for his appearance. >> bill: can you imagine. >> my, how the mighty have fallen. >> having a party on the your house and, we have some entertainment. >> yeah. >> for our children's birthday party, last year we had a puppet show. this year, we've got -- kuboachi. >> he ate it at a minute. >> he hung out for the rest -- hung out for the whole game. >> that's gross. fifty hot dogs for your fans and throw up. >> like having a clown come to your birthday party. >> bill: >> it'

so frustrated this week. we've got an aging society with stagnant education levels. out there, there is a global pool of talent. they'll pay more taxes than they receive. they'll create a much more dynamic economy. and the last week in washington, we've been side tracked off this potential to actually give some growth to our economy by issues of how many links are in the chain we're going to build. what's going to trigger what. does gay marriage affect all of this? it's like this moral i]obtusene. this is our only shot at getting a growing economy. this attempt to win the race for global talent out there, and we are debating socrates. >> it does seem like the politics of this is coming together. robert, you're here. i want to quickly talk about guns in this respect. the president, a picture of him skeet shooting. we know that there had been a kerfuffle, this idea was he really -- the president said yes, he had fired a gun. i do have to ask you, have you seen him skeet shoot? >> i have not. but camp david for him is a private retreat that he spends most of the time with his fam

in the united states of america. it means that we're focused on education and that every young person is equipped with the skills they need to compete in the 21st century. it means that we got an energy agenda that can make us less dependent on foreign oil, but also that we're cultivating the kind of clean energy strategy that will maintain our leadership well into the future. it means that we're going to talk about, yes, deficits and taxes and sequesters and potential government shutdowns and debt ceilings. we'll talk about that stuff. all from the perspective of how are we making sure that somebody who works hard in this country, a cop or a teacher, or a construction worker or a receptionist, that they can make it if they work hard. and that their kids can make it. and dream even bigger dreams than they have achieved. and obviously, a lot of what we'll be working on michellely over the next few weeks is going to be on how do we deal with the sequester issue, and i just want to make this quick point. i had a press conference this week in which i reiterated i am prepared, eager, and a
